    Waiting for what?

    Are you waiting on the manufacturer to ship it on a form 3 to your dealer?

    Are you waiting for it to ship from out of state to your in state dealer?

    Are you waiting on the approved form 4 that you filled out to come back from the ATF?

    Then, 9 mos does seem kinda long. Did you give them a call?

    Did you mail in the paperwork yourself? I've heard stories before of some dealers taking a while to even mail in the forms.

    9 months is outrageous. I'm not sure how your dealer would send it in.

    To buy a suppressor, he gives you the paperwork with the xfer information. You fill out all the information on yourself, fingerprint card if applicable, etc. Then you write a $200 and send it to Atlanta GA ATF office.

    I've done a few xfers this year and they have all taken about 60 days (2 mos.). The last one took 2 weeks longer because ATF agent was away on a training thing. Other than that, it should not be that long.

    If you did all your paperwork and gave the check to your dealer to send in, I bet he didnt send it in. The other way to check is to see when your $200 check was cashed/deposited. From that date, it should only be about 60 days. If it's been 9 months since your cash was checked this is a problem. If your cash was not checked, your dealer screwed you and didnt send it in.

    Was your check ever cashed? I am at 115 days waiting right now. The times are a bit longer right now, but 9 months is way out there. Most are about 4 to 5 months.

    Technically, the seller is the taxpayer, which is why only he can check on the status with ATF. In practice, most sellers hand the paperwork to the buyer, and the buyer pays the transfer tax as part of the purchase price. But the seller is the taxpayer and the person deemed to be submitting the paperwork.

    Two months is on the fast side, most are waiting at least three to five months.
